A year or so ago, I had the great fortune of meeting Phil Gerbyshak on a Twitter chat. Phil is a well-established authority on social selling– and an all-around fun guy. We had the opportunity to chat recently on the topics of social selling and sales intelligence. Listen in! Some insightful nuggets you’ll take away include how you can:
- Make friends first, and do business last– so your business lasts.
- Take a balanced approach.
- Offer value instead of volume.
- Be authentic.
- Use online tools to boost your sales intelligence.
And bonus: why wishing people “happy birthday” is an easy first step in building strong connections.
Catch our discussion here, and let us know if you have additional tips for social selling.
